Animal Foraging Behavior & Distribution
Animal foraging behavior and distribution are critical tools for managing desired plant communities and grassland resilience to drought.
Climate Change Adaptation Planning
In anticipation of climate change, many decision-makers desire data, information, and consultation to better plan and manage their resources and operations.
Climate services are desired by a variety of stakeholders to improve access to climate data, information, and expertise, and to inform climate-related decisions.
Community-Based Sustainable Rangeland Livestock Production
Ranching in Arizona continues to be a primary land use and provides the number one agricultural product in the state comprising revenue of around $800 million annually.
Improving Range Management on Public Lands: Planning, Analysis, & Monitoring
Research and education on rangeland resource planning methods, analysis procedures and vegetation monitoring techniques furnish the ecological and technical basis for management planning and implementation of rangelands.
Noxious, Invasive Plants
Noxious, invasive plants are harmful non-native species that are regulated by state and federal laws because they threaten agriculture, navigation, fish, wildlife, or human health on both public and private lands.
Rangeland & Natural Resource Ecology & Management
This program addresses both consumptive and non-consumptive uses of natural resources on rangelands, while considering the unique blend of biological and political constraints that occur across Arizona’s watersheds.
Expanding our Environmental Knowledge
We conduct research that addresses global challenges such as climate change, and use what we learn to find solutions to natural resource and environmental challenges.
